For me today is Friday. Please don't be jealous.

On a quick personal note: if you ever have a chance to see Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings live, you must do yourself the favor of going. Absolutely worth it. Here's a sample in case you haven't heard.

Alright. Now, back

If you're having a hard time filling up your DVR, I suggest the SyFy channel's American reboot of the critically and popularly acclaimed British show Being Human. It kind of sounds like the Real World meets The Graveyard Book.

Fans of Star Wars art know Mondo. And today they announced their Black Friday sale piece: Linch Pin R2-D2. Very cool. Of course, the only problem with buying Mondo art is that they don't tell you what time it goes on sale, and they go extremely fast. Underwire suggests following their Twitter feed for the best results.

Just in case you've ever wondered, "Do WiFi signals kill trees?" A Dutch research group has an answer. I'm not in to dishing out spoilers, so you'll have to click the link to find out for yourself.

Meanwhile, NPR's science writer, Robert Krulwich wonders, "Why can't we walk straight?"

So unbeknownst to me, Y: The Last Man (Brian K. Vaughan), one of the great comic series of the last decade, has been optioned for a movie. Apparently, they even had a director. Notice my clever use of the past tense?

I won't be back until Monday, so happy link hunting until then, and Happy Thanksgiving! To celebrate, here's a video.

  1. Thanks for the heads up on "Being Human." I adore the British version (have been watching it on BBC America). If the American version is half as good, it will be great. MK
